Is the Mobile XP the best value processor?!?! Upgrades after all can be done in smaller steps, and perhaps tie you over until Socket M2 is released in Q1′ And with a watchful view to the 7-Segment postcode debug display one can immediately recognize the overclock difficulty. Naturally the SLI board got also an extensive overlocking check, since particularly EPoX motherboards are predestinated for overclocking. A third party may be able to revise their BIOS and that is my next area of exploration. Riddle me this, batman; WTH is going on with

Is the Mobile XP the best value processor?!?! CPU voltage can be adjusted from. It goes without saying that there is no point peox buying initially two low-end cards instead of one, on a par to their joined performance.

Until now, motherboards for the Socket have been very budget orientated with little features or ability to boost the overall system performance – that slo until EPoX got its claws into the high-speed budget market. The performance is thus really awesome! Now, on to the the rough spots. This is too cool!


It works fine, good overclocking feature in BIOS, and a nice combination of harware features however, obviously, it won’t rcognize the DTRs.

As shown, there are actually more undervolting options than there are overvolting options; a definite negative for hardcore overclockers.


Initially, I booted the system at standard voltage because EPoX limits processor voltage selections to standard, plus. Timings and memory frequency are conveniently highlighted on the bootup screen, Magic Health window is also located there at the bottom of the screenwhich displays temperatures, rpms, voltages — everything offered by system monitoring.

EPoX techical support claims they will not be adding this feature to future BIOS revisions as they state that there are significant differences btween the DTR line and the standard desktop line. Noise level, dB A: Brief description of this jumper is provided on the PCB. As sound chip EPoX uses the 6-channel ALC chip, which is able to give support for up to 6 sound channels with 3x 3.


This is an obvious 12X multiplier not the maximun 13X shown by the program.

Both instruction guides are detailed and clearly outline what novice users need to know. Ask a new question.

So far, it’s the only model from EPoX with this combination of a chipset and a processor socket, so its PCB layout is unique. All trademarks used are properties of their respective owners.
